Check the default gateway address (router's address). Go to start>run. Type cmd and hit ok. In the command prompt. Type ipconfig. Take note of the default gateway address under the wireless section and type it in the address bar of internet explorer. It should take you to your router's settings page. If it asks for a password. Let me know the model of your wireless router.

I have just got a Belkin N1 vision wireless modem router. I have set it up and have it working ok on a Unsecure wireless network. But as soon as I try to secure the network. I get the following message...


Hi,

Right-click on the network icon in the bottom right hand corner of your screen, Press Connect to a Network. You should see your wireless network in the list. Before you secured it, you could automatically connect to it because it was unsecured. Now you will have to double click on it and enter the username and password you secured your router with.
Once you have done that, there should be a box for you to tick that says 'Automatically connect to this network'. Tick that.
Done.

Hope this helps

I have an acer aspire and am trying to connect to an unsecured network in a house I now live in. I cannot connect; do I need to change my LAN or wireless router settings? How do I do this?


First after you have a wireless adapter is to install the drivers for it and scan for a wireless network with your wireless address name. Then just connect. If it dosn't connect or if you need further instruction just tell me.

Belkin Wireless Modem Router problem


well, first of all the i also have the N1 belkin wireless modem router, in order for it to connect, there has to be a wireless connection in your area for you to connect to, if any of your neighbors so have wireless you can connect to their network, but if you are not getting a conection that means no one around you has wireless or lan, the belkin wireless is not a internet provider it just extends the distance of your internal wireless. some networks may be secured as well, sometimes you can only connect to unsecured networks unless you have the name and passcode for the secured network.

You need to have a wireless network in range. AV and firewall software are a good idea. To connect to a wireless network you should have a little icon that looks like a monitor with )) beside of it on your task bar. Right click on it then select view avaible wireless networks. then select a unsecured network, wait for it to connect and then surf on.

I forgot my network key, and purchase another computer. So, I second computer can't connect to my wireless network.


Hello Haity01,

There should be a very small reset button on the back of your router that you will need to press (with a pen or paper clip, etc...) for at least 10 seconds while it's powered up. Doing so will revert the router to it's default configuration (unsecured wireless network, or default key printed on the router or router/modem). If resetting defaults to open/unsecured? You should be able to address the router by typing 192.168.1.1 into the address bar of a browser once connected to the router and enable encryption and re enter a new key, then save those settings.

I hope this helps, and Good luck.
